Tucked away in the upper northwest corner of Habersham County, this 23.41 acres on Odis Barron Road in Clarkesville Georgia provides an exceptional natural setting for a mountain estate home in northeast Georgia. With over 1200 feet of frontage on the Left Fork of the Soque River just as it descends out of U.S. Forestry Service land, the combination of wooded and pastured acreage offers ownership of a seasonal trout stream, rushing shoals, mountain views, and several possible home sites to suit your tastes .
The trout stream waters here run cold and clear year round as the river rambles along the bottom lands before joining Goshen Creek a mile further south to form the Soque River proper. Native poplar, river birch, and alder provide natural shade to the intermittent shoals and pools along the way.
The pasture fronting the river is a level 13.03 acres composed of two separate county approved lots of record, each with a 50′ setback off the river. The pasture bottom land is currently used for grazing cattle and cutting hay, but could be suitable for a variety of agricultural or recreational purposes, including organic gardening, beekeeping, or equine training.
On the other side of Odis Barron Road is an additional 10.38 acres on a wooded knoll facing Chimney Mountain, overlooking the Soque Valley and adjoining the Tray Mountain Wilderness Area. Over 400 feet bordering U.S. Forestry Service allows you easy access to hike, hunt, and explore the national forest right at your backdoor.
From here you could literally day hike to the Appalachian Trail a few miles away or ascend to the top of nearby Chimney Mountain to enjoy the 360-degree long-range views. The hillside provides the ideal building sites with a southern exposure . . . take a few trees down and have extraordinary year-round mountain and valley views.
Replete with deer and turkey (and the occasional bear!), you can hunt, fish, picnic, farm, or just get in touch with nature here as you enjoy all the recreation available to you on your mountain valley estate. When you prefer a little more civilization, just minutes away you can enjoy the vineyards of Sautee-Nacoochee, the night life of Helen, the shorelines of Lake Burton, or the restaurants of Clarkesville.
